    Itís always sad when we lose one, but some hit harder than most as we all know. Lisa and I have been friends for what feels like forever - and sheís lost her best mate. Sad doesnít even begin to describe how I feel for her. RIP Dougan

    I dont know - hopefully it was quick and as painless as possible, Lisa loved him like I loved happy hussar, and is a similar amount devisitated at the moment so I canít ask yet. Very sad

    Alisier D'Irlande has passed away following his last outing. Shame, very talented horse who I don't think we saw the best of.

    Real shame. Like most of Hen’s at the time, was an exemplary jumper, and as touch and game as they come.

    Thought he'd died already to be honest, bit like Charles Aznavour.

    Dear old Edredon Bleu- what a great and valiant horse he was and a wonderful jumper of a fence . Difficult to split his QMCC and King George wins . I recall Lord H on here having had a good bet on Tieutchev in the KG yet admitting to cheering EB home to hold him off . That is the sort of horse he was . Thanks for the memories .

    Old CA seems to have lived a very full life to the end - apparently he was not long back from a tour of Japan and was due to start another tour in Paris in November - way to go I reckon.
